Peter walked on water with Jesus Christ when none of his team members could demonstrate courage; however, the same Peter began to drown in water when his faith wavered. The scripture reported, “And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus” (Matthew 14:28-29). Peter was distracted as reported, “But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid;...Read more

King Herod lost his mind during his birthday party; he allowed a little girl to manipulate him into killing John the Baptist. The scripture reported, “But when Herod’s birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod. Therefore he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, “Give me John the Baptist’s head here on a platter.” And the king was sorry; nevertheless, because of the oaths and...Read more

God hates wickedness; he will not allow wicked people to go scot-free but punish them in due time. The scripture described wickedness, “They (wicked people) slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless. Yet they say, “The Lord does not see, nor does the God of Jacob understand” (Psalm 94:6-7). God will repay evil people for their wicked acts as the bible stated, “Understand, you senseless among the people; and you fools, when will you be wise? He who planted the ear, shall He not...Read more

Christians must direct all praises to God rather than engaging in self-praise. Believers must understand that Jesus God is our all-in-all. Without his help, our lives would completely be irrelevant for God’s kingdom. Christians obtained God’s free salvation through his Son Jesus Christ. He died for our sins and reconciled us back to God. The scripture buttressed this point as it emphasized, “For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no...Read more

Christians have the mandate to proclaim the faithfulness of God to the ends of the earth. We must hail God’s supreme power as one psalmist committed to do in the Bible. He stated, “I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD; I will make mention of your righteousness, of yours only. O God, You have taught me from my youth; and to this day I declare your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to...Read more

The promises of God stand sure on people who faithfully serve him. The Creator will benefit his faithful children with all good things of life as the scripture stated, “The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing” (Psalm 92:12-14).   Lesson: A person who faithfully serve God has nothing...Read more

Christians must follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ and practice true humility as the scripture emphasized, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God...Read more

Christians are to be steadfast in faith and bring glory to God that we have professed to love and serve. Apostle Paul admonished the believers in Philippi and said, “Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of...Read more

Only God can guarantee perfect security for people; no one else has the capability of granting an absolute protection! Any security provided by mortal man should be deemed imperfect since it will ultimately fail. The scripture emphasized, “No king is saved by the multitude of an army; a mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; neither shall it deliver any by its great strength” (Psalm 33:16-17).   Lesson: Perfect security comes from God, and only...Read more

The people of Philippi mercilessly beat Paul and Silas and jailed them for preaching the gospel. However, Paul and Silas remained steadfast in faith. They praised God instead of complaining! As a result of that, God remarkably delivered them and also saved the chief guard of the prison. The scripture reported, “But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the...Read more
